The Texas Company building, designed by Warren and Wetmore, is currently undergoing rehabilitation for reuse as apartments. Constructed in 1915, 1936 and 1959, the building's limestone and masonry exterior is highlighted with exuberant terracotta cornice and spandrel panels. One of its most recognized architectural features is the sidewalk arcade designed and built by the Guastavino Company.

This Building Arts lecture includes the historic and architectural background of the building and an overview of the various tax incentive programs supporting its reuse.
